Ontario adding 3,300 MW of renewable energy to grid by 2015
Canadian Manufacturing
The organization in charge of Ontario's power system said more than 3,300 megawatts of renewable energy will be added to the province's electricity grid by the spring of 2015. Renewable energy sources — wind and solar installations and biomass stations — that go online in Ontario between December 2013 and May 2015 will be used to offset the loss of about 2,150 MW in generation capacity from the shutdown of coal-fired generators over the same time, according to the Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO).

Diminishing returns have prompted the Liberals to tilt against wind turbines.
